High impact leaders,

ready when you need them.

Industrial Manufacturing

Korn Ferry’s global industrial manufacturing practice focuses on helping companies attract, develop, and retain best-in-class leaders. Profitable growth is harder to find in developed and emerging markets, so the need to create new value for customers and stakeholders requires leaders who are learning agile and able to drive change in a leaner environment.

They must possess strategic focus to extract growth from mature markets, optimize global supply chains, and enhance operational productivity — all while managing risk. Talent is a key success factor and distinguishing competitive advantage in the sector.

Global presence with local expertise.

Korn Ferry’s senior consultants are located in key business centers around the globe and work with the world’s leading companies to help them identify leader potential, drive development, accelerate readiness, and energize transitions. We can help you identify internal and external talent and develop them through engaging, proven solutions. When you need to hire, develop, and retain strong leaders who can embrace today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities – Korn Ferry offers search, leadership, and talent consulting, along with assessment and development programs to help you achieve your goals.

Korn Ferry’s industrial manufacturing practice is organized around these sub-sectors:

  • Assemblies
  • Chemicals
  • Machinery
  • Materials
  • Paper & packaging
  • Stationary equipment

Our consultants specialize in attracting and optimizing executives at the corporate and operational levels. Chief executive officers, group executives, and division/business unit general managers are a core capability, along with critical functional leadership in operations, engineering, finance, human resources, legal, and IT.

Korn Ferry’s industrial manufacturing practice is the global market leader, with particular expertise supporting clients’ growth and transition in emerging markets and their fight to take sustainable strategic positions in mature markets.
